The Rain Is No Match For Bruce and His Fans


Bruce and the band: Citizens Bank Park

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band

September 3, 2012

Citizens Bank Park, Philly PA

3 hours and 30 mins


The Boss came out shredding on this rainy night in Philly. More so than usual, Bruce picked up his Telecaster and showed his electric guitar ‘chops’ as he ripped through the first 5 songs of the night. This was highlighted by a killer intro to ‘Prove It All Night’ that really set the mood of the night. He was also, at times, on a more serious note, really focusing on working in dual themes of “ghosts” and “working”. Overall a great show and a wonderful crowd. Glad to see the Boss and the E Street Band still love to perform and didn’t miss a beat without Clarence; although he is dearly missed. They are on fire right now and playing some of the best shows in years. Check em out if you can. Rock on.

The Gourds Melt The Face Off NYC


The Gourds

The Boys really tore it up this week in NYC. The place was packed, the band was stoked, they got down and dirty.┬áThe band broke out some deep tracks, rolling through “Pickles” and “Honduras”. I was not disappointed. The Gourds continue their east coast run at Johnny D’s outside of Boston last night and head on up to Charleston, RI for the Rhythm and Roots Fest this weekend.
